Salt bath carbonitriding


Salt bath carbonitriding based on the TENIFER® process is used to increase wear resistance, corrosion resistance and fatigue strength. As opposed to electroplating or chemical surface layer processes, nitriding in a salt bath provides much higher corrosion protection in many cases.

In the TENIFER® technology used by H+K a carbonitriding layer is formed that has a very large amount of nitrides. This property gives the treated components exceptionally high protection against wear and corrosion. Another reason why many of our customers in the automotive industry and drive technology sector insist on this technology are the improved running and anti-frictional properties.



  • Increased resistance to corrosion
  • Increased wear protection
  • Improved running and anti-frictional properties
  • Good endurance strength
